The VISTA programme strategy


Build competence to meet the opportunities and challenges the transition to a
low-carbon energy system brings, by supporting science that provides fundamental insight in:

  • Basin analysis, efficient resource identification and utilization, and unlocking new resources
  • Future development solutions
  • Sustainability, environment and low carbon solutions


In a 2020–2050 perspective, fossil resources will remain an important contributor to global energy consumption. It is therefore imperative to lower the environmental footprint of fossil fuels production by:

  • optimizing energy efficiency in all operations including field electrification
  • develop CCS/CCUS technologies

Beyond 2050
In a perspective beyond 2050, a CO2 neutral society will require efficient energy storage and transport solutions to meet the intermittency of renewable energy sources, and to secure energy supply beyond the electricity grid.
